Brickwork and glass installation is now nearing the top of 345 N Morgan Street, an 11-story mixed-use development in West Loop’s Fulton Market district. Under development by Sterling Bay, the 200,000 square feet of programming includes ground-floor retail and offices on the above floors.
Office features will include floor plates measuring 24,000 square feet, along with high ceilings and industrial finishes to complement its outward-facing design. The extensive amenities will be clustered at the top of the building, and will feature spaces like a fitness center, a grand library, a 5,000-square-foot outdoor terrace, as well as a conservatory with its own double-sided fireplace.
Much in line with other nearby office construction, the design by Eckenhoff Saunders pays homage to the neighborhood’s industrial backdrop. The facade makes use of a dark gray brick complemented by dark metal accents and prominent arch openings.
Parking will come with 34 spaces within an integrated garage, along with close access to the CTA L’s Green and Pink Lines via a four-minute walk south to Morgan station. Bus service in the area also includes Routes 65 via a five-minute walk north, along with Route 8 access via seven-minute walk southeast.
The pace of construction has been quick, having broken ground at the end of last summer. Skender and JLL Construction have served as co-general contractors, with a targeted completion date of September of this year.
